Kids are already going back to school, and when I'm out at the store, I am totally missing the cheerful optimism of back-to-school shopping.
I remember buying that new planner, binder, and pencil box- vowing to have the most organized and productive school year yet. Nevermind what came of it all after a couple of months (errr...weeks maybe...).
It's all new shoes and new crayons.
As an adult, it's not quite the same, but I suppose we can improvise.
For example, I bought new shoes today and I feel totally justified (...only a teensy bit guilty) calling them my back-to-school shoes. ;)
Well, shoes are fun, but in the spirit of the go-getting fresh-start kind of mentality, here are my back-to-school (life) goals (in no significant order).
1. Stop buying shoes
2. Pay off debt
3. Look for new job where I can make more money (to pay off debt and buy more shoes...oops)
4. Clean out junk and clutter from house
5. Exercise more (at all)
6. Eat in a more healthful manner
Ok, easy stuff, right?!
HAPPY NEW SCHOOL YEAR, TO YOU!!!
